Presidential Debate 2012, Round 2: Musicians React on Twitter
Barack Obama found his pulse during last night's second debate with GOP challenger Mitt Romney, with snap polls from CBS, CNN and Public Policy Polling, among others, declaring the President winner of the town hall-style forum at Long Island's Hofstra University. But whereas Obama stepped up his game following a lethargic first debate, the same can't be said about music celebs on Twitter, who let's-face-it, blew it.
On the left, members of Black Eyed Peas and Outkast stayed busy, tweeting and retweeting fact checkers and delivering quips about Romney not offering any specifics. On the right, you had crickets, save for a wonky reference-driven buckshot from Ted Nugent.
